Roasty the Frying Squirrel

So there I was, heading out to the Boxer Shorts Rally at Snow Farm in Williamsburg MA this past weekend, minding my own business on the local roads, when I caught sight of a squirrel coming in from 10 O'clock and making a mad dash under my bike. I didn't feel a bump, but I didn't see him scamper off to safety either. I actually paid the enitre incident no mind at all until we stopped for gas about 120 miles later, and I happened to notice this:







As you can imagine, a two-hour ride on a scaldingly hot exhaust crossover pipe can take its toll on a small woodland creature. It fact, it was not an easy task prying him off of his final perch either, and judging by the expression on (what's left of) his face, that pipe's temperature came as quite a surprise.

So, with the warning that the image below is not for the faint of heart, may I present tonight's special: Cajun Blackened Squirrel ala R1150GS:

See, your bike made you dinner. All it has to do now is fetch you a beer, and then you won't even need a wife.
